What She's Really Saying

When I'm talking to my sister, I feel like she's not really telling me what she's thinking. I'll notice an uptick in her voice, or a facial smirk. I'll repeat the question, and ask if something's on her mind, but to no avail. What do I do? -- Confused Carl

The Hard of Hearing

Family and friends come to me with tech help, but they won't listen to my recommendations. Oftentimes they ignore my advice and turn to someone else ... but then call me up later to clean up the mess their "tech friend" created. What do I do? -- Mad Mark

The Sick Mother

My mother's nursing home does not feel she needs a doctor to check in on her. On the phone, my mother tells me she is certain something is wrong. What do I do? -- Jennifer in Jasper

The Ungrateful Children

My husband and I have always believed in an allowance for our children -- we didn't want them to be distracted from school by jobs. But now that they're college students, all they want to do is spend our money like crazy. Why do they do this? -- Betty in Birmingham

The Perpetual Victim

No one in my family supports me. My husband and children will defend everyone under the sun, no matter their fault -- except for me. I give, and I give, and I give ... and get nothing in return. -- Luisa in Lexington

The Abuser

A bud of mine and I became good friends in college because he helped me through a really sad time. Now, however, he blows me off frequently at the last minute, always disrespects my wishes when it comes to hanging out, and seems to have more fun with new friends he's made ... who happen to socialize on a slightly higher level than his old friends ever could. What do I do? -- Pat in Purchase
